Even before 2016 ended, my husband and I have had to face some challenges and this continued on after we welcomed the new year.
What has kept us steady is the reality that the Lord is holding us up, sustaining us with His grace. And so, as the song goes, it is indeed well with our soul.
We believe that God still has more in store for us as we journey through 2017. I pray that if you, too, are facing challenges in your life right now, you will also learn to lean on the True Source of Strength and be able to say that it is also well with your soul 🙂
A brand new year is here! And while many of us celebrate the coming in of the new year last January 1, the Chinese people throughout the world today is celebrating the Chinese new year.
Well, whether you count the 1st day of January as the new year or the 28th, my wish for you is that you will pursue your dreams and hopes this year under the loving guidance and grace of God. And yes, may you and I always choose joy this year, even during challenging times.
“…the joy of the Lord is your strength.” Nehemiah 8:10

For unto us a Child is born,
Unto us a Son is given;
And the government will be upon His shoulder.
And His name will be called
Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
Of the increase of His government and peace
There will be no end,
Upon the throne of David and over His kingdom,
To order it and establish it with judgment and justice
From that time forward, even forever.
The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this.
Isaiah 9:6-7 (NKJV)
